Ive got close to 1400 hrs on my cub. Ive gone through two seats. The weld that supports the back rest has broken on both occasions. The first time the machine was still under warranty so i got a free replacemet. Now the warranty is long over. Im a decent sized guy and i often mow rough, hilly terrain so i know thats part of the issue. I can have my neighbor just weld the crap out of it, or weld some supports on it. But since i do mow some rough areas im thinking of buying a decent suspension seat. I weigh around 215. Any big guys out there have any experience with the suspension seats? Would one just bottom out with my weight? Do they eventually break like the ones that come on the cubs? I know there are some that can be adjusted, but what is the weight limit? Is there a website that sells one somewhat less expensive that a scag dealer? The standard replacement seat at one of the two dealers in my area is around 220 dollars. Thats a joke. A nice suspension seat there would cost well over 300. Thanks for the input.
